Official Trailer for the AT

Make your writing voice yours

Normal-Is-Boring
Ever hear the saying, truth sets you free? We hear write this way not that way, be as perfect as you can, never make a grammar mistake. Those things are true to an extent, in this article, you will find how not to be scared of your voice. 
"We all have pet phrases, tics, favored slang, mispronounced words, emotion-driven fragments and run-ons. From all these things, our personality emerges vividly to those around us. The same is true in our writing: the limitless possibilities of imperfect language allow us to reveal to our readers our own personalities and, by extension, the personality of our stories and our characters."

Update on The Sylph's Trilogy and me


Thank you for the 102,834 views, when I'm discouraged, you are the light at the end of my burrow.
In July l will be entering the first five chapters of Ayekah's Tale on Wattpad, I’m hyper excited! Just remember that The Sylph's Trilogy has adult material, so don't read it if that might offend you and it's not for minors.
I'm still under mentorship by Horror Writers of America, also continuing the University of Iowa Power of the Pen online course. Completed the ISA Craft Courses in Screenwriting but it will be awhile before I attempt a script.
Published a few new poems on Hello Poetry and have an arsenal of about 70 I might enter into contests. Still involved in current events and learning Google Analytics.

Know why to self-publish or find agent/publisher

@2011Marta
To self-publish or look for an agent is not a decision that only new authors pour over. Some think that authors published by a publisher have it made and no longer have to bother selling their book(s), but that is not the case. The authors I've talked with are constantly looking for publishing and marketing source. On the article by She Writes several agents discuss publishing choices: Articles by Agents on SheWrites.
